To all Ivy Tech graduates..

Posted

I have a question for you all, I was wondering if you could tell me about how much your ASN degree cost all together (after grad.)...including tuition, books, supplies etc. I know it varies, but could you give an estimate? I'm wanting to take 6 credit hours a sem (going slow) and my EFC is 4050 so needless to say I will have to take out student loans. And was just curious. Thank you all!

FYI - Depending on what campus you attend, you may not have a say in what you want to take. Some campuses tell you exactly what you are going to take and when.

I didn't know that. I seen a few people state how much it cost them (even with student loans and grants) for their degree (again depending on what degree and what school) but I couldn't find anyone that stated how much their ASN degree from Ivy Tech. cost them after all was said and done. So I was just curious, thanks though.

I see your a new RN, did you go to Ivy Tech? and could you give an estimate for your degree if you don't mind?

It is $95 per credit hour and there is 69-71 total credit (this includes general education requirements). Total about $7000. Add books in there, lab fees, roughly about $8000.

Thank you so so much newRN09! That gives me a good estimate.

I went to the information session at the Anderson location IVY TECH and in the packet they gave it is an est of 11,758 total. here's the breakdown-Tuition 6555 for ASN Traditional, 40. per sem technology fee, ATI testing 358. books 3,680, uniforms 400, NCLEX licensure 250, graduation expenses 120, CPR 45, physical exam 150 and then background check 40. hope this helps, this packet they gave out was very helpful. Good luck with school.

I think that for most programs 3000 or less a year could easily be done. Take 12 credit hours a semester (min. for full time financial aid) and use used books, you have got it made! The nursing program takes a couple of years, has some pricey books, and has a few extra fees. They certainly advertise the cheapest way to go though.

I am not sure the books for the first semester of NS cost me 600 dollars, uniform another 78 dollars, shoes were 50 and equipment cost me 50. Doctors office cost me 25 I have decent insurance no insurance I would have had to pay for my physical, titers, and TB test, and Heb B. That does not include the paper and ink I have went through. The second semester I spent 400 in books and had to buy another pen light and more paper and ink. I also bought Microsoft office and it cost me $140 dollars I got the professional version. Third semester I had to buy two more books at 150 dollars a pair of callipers that cost 10 dollars. The fourth semester I bought one textbook at 80 dollars. This is not included in what I spent in tuition or my prereqs for a grand total of 1505. I am not sure how much I spent before getting in. HTH

Each credit hour now is $104.55, atleast that's what it is at the Gary location.

Look for your books on craigslist many of my classmates have listed their books for cheap on there.

Many times my classmates would give their old scrub tops etc to the program chair. Check into that as it will save you lots of money and to be honest we only had clinical one day a week. You can generally get by with one set of scrubs.

To be honest some of the reference books you can do without or get an old version that will work fine for careplans. Ask around and you can find some ways to cut down on the bills.

Also some of your vaccines etc you can get for cheap or free at the health department.

Good Luck!
